What does Pope Benedict XVI have to say about science? Read here.
Pope Benedict XVI, however, takes a different view. In his weekly Wednesday audience on March 24th (full text here), the Pope used the occasion of reflections on the life of Saint Albert the Great to speak about the relationship between faith and science. More than simply stating that faith and science may be merely compatible, the Pope asserted that scientific investigation can in fact be a positive means for coming closer to God. “Saint Albert the Great reminds us,” the Pope says, “that between science and faith there is friendship, and that men of science can undertake, through their vocation to the study of nature, a genuine and fascinating journey of sanctity.”
